by former president bill clinton. >> good morning. good morning. i want to begin by thanking governor romney for coming here today. this is really important. all of you who were there last night know if we cannot cooperate over these issues we cannot find it anywhere. this is really important. i thought i would introduce him by giving you an example of one personal experience we had together, when i passed legislation and signed it from congress, the model for me was a program based in boston called city year, which a lot of you know about. it is a great program. when i left the white house there was discussion about whether americorps would be defunded, the largest affiliate in the united states was city year, and mitt romney was on the board. i wrote him a letter saying we should continue this. i called him and i was out of the white house and i said, governor, i love city year. that is what americorps is all about. i hope you will save it. he urged the republican congress to continue to support city year, and they did. i just visited the program in south africa where the youth unemploymen
on the discussion about presidential leadership styles. jon huntsman used bill clinton's democratic convention speech as an example of what mitt romney should do during the first debate for mitt romney tonight. we will also hear from bill kristol and bart gordon. >> i am darrell west. i would like to welcome you to today's events on campaign of leadership. we are what testing today's events, so we would like to welcome those of you better watching through the internet. we also have c-span with us today. we will be live tweeting the event. vileader. during the question and answer time, we will take questions from the live audience, as well as the virtual audience. the question about leadership has been a big part of the 2012 election. this offers wind -- insight into leadership style and approach to management. the question is, how does the presidential campaign shed light on the leadership qualities. what does the campaign experience, as we have seen it so far indicate their approach to management and governance? today we have assembled an outstanding panel of speakers to help analyze the ques
that. they're the ones that could've done something about the tax rate. how can bill clinton get away with clement the republicans were the ones who deregulated and created the financial problems when he repealed glass- steagall in 1999? that was the underpinning of the whole problem. all the big banks went under, almost all of them. how can he get away with that ? does he not want to admit it? how does he make that statement? host: maria bartiromo? guest: it is political football. number one on the tax code. we could have seen changes over the last few years. change the tax code. it is all legal. they can use loopholes, and so they would do it. it is not illegal. it is what they could pressure due because of loopholes are available to them. lower the corporate tax rate and broaden the base. we have not seen anybody do that. we are hearing a lot of attacks on wealth and business and as people who supposedly are not paying their fair share but there is nothing that anybody is doing about it. votewant the constituents' of that person who is paying a lower rate. bill clinton is a seasone
. but ross perot joined the two candidates from the democratic and republican parties. bush and bill clinton. we have a third-party candidates now. they are not as perhaps promising in some ways as ross perot or other third-party candidates. the question here from one of our twitter observers -- what have we lost by excluding third- party candidates from the debates? >> we have lost third-party candidates. [laughter] >> and obviously some third party supporters. and i mean this in an objective way, but excluding those who do not, by the numbers, have the chance to hold office -- what do we lose? >> i think we lose risk, people willing to take a risk, given the point that they are already behind, or not likely a person to be chosen. when you think about the primary season's -- often there much more productive because you have people like a ron paul. who are willing to bring up questions, make statements that the primary candidates will not make, because there's too much risk for them. one of the things that the independent or the third party candidates do is move the discourse and a way that
the tax rate. secondly, how can bill clinton get away with clement the republicans were the ones who deregulated and created the financial problems when he repealed glass-steagall in 1999? that was the underpinning of the whole problem. in 10 short years, all the big banks went under, almost all of them. how can he get away with that? that was one of the hallmarks the tv campaign a bump. does he not want to admit it? how does he make that statement? host: maria bartiromo? guest: it is political football. it is all politics. number one on the tax code. we could have seen changes over the last few years. aboutre going to complain people not paying their fair share, change the tax code. it is all legal. they can use loopholes, and so they would do it. anybody would. it is not illegal. it is what they could pressure due because of loopholes are available to them. lower the corporate tax rate and broaden the base. eliminate the loopholes. we have not seen anybody do that. we are hearing a lot of attacks on wealth and business and as people who supposedly are not paying their fair share bu
. medicaid. when bill clinton gave his talk at the democratic national convention he was incredibly shrewd because he did not talk about medicare. why did he not talk about medicare? medicare is not the real difference in terms of numbers between these two campaigns. it really is medicaid. when you look at medicaid and who benefits from medicaid, it is a lot of white, working-class folks, as well as underrepresented minority backgrounds. when you think about how republicans need to talk about it, i think that is that funny thing about ryan and ryanism. he has in some respects gotten it right in talking about how you want to talk about how we actually care about the safety net. it matters a lot to us and a free enterprise society, and a dynamic society we need to have this. it is not a side thing that we put a garnish on the salad, but it is an incredibly important part of making the system work. the problem is that -- ryan, the reason he excites activists is for other reasons. the way in which he sometimes uses a very apocalyptic language about the threats to free enterprise. i think that
. that is the same rate we had when bill clinton was president and we created 23 million new jobs, the biggest surplus in history, and a whole lot of millionaires to boot. [applause] so that is my plan. in fairness, my opponent has got a plan, too. there's only one problem. some of you heard bill clinton say that there is no or arithmetic in it. [laughter] they think that somehow you can lower our deficits by spending another $5 trillion on a new tax breaks for the wealthy. but no matter how many times and they try to recruit their campaign and explain it, they cannot. they can't explain how you spend $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthy without raising taxes on middle-class families. how do you spend it $2 trillion on a new military spending that our military has not asked for and cut our deficits? you cannot do it. the math does not add up. >> president obama at his last campaign stop before tonight's debate. now, mitt romney speaking to reporters on monday. >> now, you know that you are going to get visitors this week. we are going to have a debate. there's a lot of interest surrounding
to control spending, but i think you need a democrat, someone like bill clinton who can work with both parties. and that's not what we're getting right now. host: thank you very much, pat. our next call comes from david from minnesota on our line for independents. caller: yes, i think the ones that are at the top of the food chain are the lobbyists and the people that are buying our government out from underneath us, and i think we should have term limits and get rid of some of the people that have been in there for 100 years. and i think right now we've got the best government money can buy, and it's been bought by the lobbyists and the big corporations. there's also a saying, congress fiddled while the u.s. burned. and there's only 10% approval of congress right now. and these guys get too cozy with the lobbyists and the public should break up the logjam by voting all these old-timers out and getting rid of them. as far as the one-party system, hitler had a one-party system with the nazi party, and stalin had it with the communist party. i don't think that works out very well either.
've learned this election season, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do any man a lot of good. [laughter] after that introduction -- since serving as president here in america, president clinton has devoted himself to lifting the downtrodden around the world. one of the best things that can happen to any cause, to any people, is to have bill clinton as its advocate. i appreciate your willingness to come to us with those messages. as i have watched the astounding impact of this initiative from afar, i have been impressed by the extraordinary power you have derived by harnessing together different people of different backgrounds, and different institutions of different persuasions. you have fashioned partnerships across traditional boundaries -- public and private, for- profit and nonprofit, charitable and commercial. on a smaller scale, i have seen partnerships like this work before. in massachusetts, two social pioneers brought corporations and government and volunteers together to form city year, the model for americorps. i sat with then candidate for president bill clinton a
. the candidates are: independent candidate ross perot, governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee, and presiden george bush. >> i am jim lehrer. i will be the moderator for this 90 minute event. thisis on the campus of washington university, in st. louis, missouri. 3 journalists will be asking questions, john mashek, ann compton of abc news, and sander vanocur. >> we will follow a format agreed to agreed by the clinton and bush campaigns. that contains no restriions on the content or subject matter of the questions. each candidate will haveup to 2 minutes for a closing atement. the order of those as well as the questioning was determined by a drawing. the first question goes to mr. perot. he wl have 2 minutes to answer to be followed by rebuttals of 1 minute each by governor clinton and then president bush. gentlemen, good evening. >> the first pic tonight is, what separates each of you from the other. mr. perot, what do you believe tonight is the single most important separating issue of this campaign? pa is that 5.5 ipal issue that million people came together and put me on the ballot. i was
in the middle of an election campaign. bill clinton was comparing beijing to baghdad. this was at the time when china was moving from baghdad to paris. [laughter] maybe i am overstating the case, but that is what is happening. this was a dramatic shift in china and the u.s. government paid absolutely no attention to it. it had no impact on the policies of the clinton the administration when it took office. since i was the american ambassador, this confronted me with a problem of american government and had one view of china but china was already moving in a different direction and that created some contradictions in trying to carry out my instructions. this time, you have some echoes of that. clearly the bo xilai affair has shown that the political system is not that different for others. leaders have their own ambitions. some succeed and some come crashing down, as in the case of bo xilai. so we should not assume political jockeying is not taking place and this could explain why the announcement of the party congress was delayed. no longer do you have an all- powerful leader who can resolve di
against it. that was a bipartisan bill. it was put forward by president clinton. i liked the ball, the people -- i like to the bill from nebraska liked the ball. --senator kerrey and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. can you explain to us why did you vote against cutting spending? why did you vote against requiring people to work for their welfare check? and why did you vote against that landmark piece of legislation? >> you have 90 seconds. >> first of all, that is several questions. i did not vote against cutting spending. we supported the george bush budget in 1990. we did the same thing in 1993. and i worked with john kasic and newt gingrich rich, and it got the job done. we balanced the budget. the unemployment rate was going down and poverty rates were going down. other than that, it didn't work. i didn't like the welfare bill. i voted against it because i didn't believe it provided the kind of child care and work support we needed to provide. we came back in, in 1997, and did it. i don't oppose of people receiving welfare to have to w
of self- reliance. here is bill clinton at the democratic convention. it was either arithmetic or facts. i was not sure what to put. it is kind of pathetic. the democrats were all waiting for somebody to come up and spell out these things clearly. it took bill clinton to come out and say something that democrats felt excited and rally about. there might be a communication problem in the white house. here is crisscrossed the speaking at the rnc. -- chris christie speaking at the rnc. mitt romney is another saying "do not forget to mention my name." here is a guy at the convention. i think the ladies know what i am talking about here. paul ryan appears -- appeals to seniors. a scary eddie munster guy. here is mitt romney's money. chilling i know a guy that does a fake twiter account called "mexican mitt romney." he is a big smash on the twitter. politico named it one of the top-10 funniest fake twitter accounts. it plays off on the fact that mitt romney's dad was born in mexico in a mormon colony and was actually -- mitt romney might be the first chicano president. mexican mitt romney seems
by a 1992 debate between george bush, bill clinton, and ross perot. then a 2000 debate with vice president al gore and george bush. past presidential debate tonight at 8:00 here on c-span. -- tonight at 7:00 here on cspan. >> cspan is not biased. there are no ads and that is arguably the biggest reason. the cspan video archives. it is one of the most historical are. i like to watch "washington journal," the house of representatives proceedings and c-span 2. >> cspan, created by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> retired military officials discussed the impact of childhood obesity and on health the options in school cafeterias related to national security. they talk about obesity and young adults and how it impacts enlistment in the military. this is half an hour. from the national press club. >> good afternoon, i am the national director for mission readiness, in nonprofit national security organization of over 300 retired generals and admirals who care deeply about the national security of this country. and to support the
with george h. w. bush and bill clinton. >> ross gave a good answer but i have to respond directly to mr. bush. you the question my patriotism. you even brought some white ring congressman out of the war white house to attack me. i honor your service in world war two. i honor mr. perot's service in uniform and every other man and woman who ever served. when joe mccarthy went around this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong. a senator from connecticut stood up to him named prescott bush, your father was right to stand up to joe mccarthy and you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed the war but i love my country and in need a president that will bring this country together and not divided. i want to bake a unified country. [applause] >> i did not question the man's patriotism, i questioned his judgment and character. what he did in moscow was fine and he explained it and i excepted. i don't accept organizing demonstrations and a foreign country when your country is at war. i'm sorry, i cannot accept that. >> all of that debate is on our video library at c-span.org. you
that bill clinton made rather effectively in his speech to the democratic convention. they argue that they devote savings to reforming medicare, not funding new entitlements. that is an important difference. both parties agree that controls are needed on medicare spending. but they disagree about the best path for. this claim by the republicans, i give it to pinocchios. obama will claim that are ryan's plan for medicare will for seniors to pay $6,400 more a year to make up for cuts in the program. this is an old democratic attack that has been around for a while. the problem is it is based on an earlier version of ryan's plan. that is another thing i have given two pinocchios. people should always be aware of dire predictions far off in the future. the $6,400 figure refers to an analysis of cbo estimates of a different, less generous ryan plan that goes to the year 2022. they make no estimates of the new version, except to say that beneficiaries might face higher costs. the plan was changed in other ways too. it changed the option of traditional medicare. it also decided to set t
to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a literate -- a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the d, the with gerald forwar other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of the stylistic -- a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is itchly more of a case of glti avoidance. to do with lot with their handler
for medicaid. limbo clinton gave a speech at the dnc, he was true. -- when bill clinton gave his speech at the dnc, he was s hrewd. when you look at medicaid and who benefits, and it's a lot of white a working-class folks. when you think about how republicans need to talk about it, that the funny thing about mid ryan -- ryan and ryanism. he has until some respects gotten it right. you want to talk about how we care about the safety net. in matters of law to was. a debate dynamics decided, we need to have this. it is not some kind of side thing but an important part of making the whole system work. the problem is that the reason why he excites a lot of activists is for other reasons -- the way he sometimes uses very apocalyptic language about free enterprise and what have you. that is one reason why governors have a big advantage. if you look at mitch daniels, for example, he talked about very conservative ideas. he will back collective bargaining rights at the the history. -- he rolled back collective bargaining rights in his stae. he was able to reach beyond that base and talk about h
writer to president bill clinton, he wrote over 200 speeches for the president. bookt: we have a new called "elephant in the room: washington in the bush years." it argues that 2012 is thought to be a referendum on barack obama or maybe a referendum on mitt romney. we think it's a referendum on george w. bush, and it's a compilation of some of the best writings in the washington monthly during the bush years. host: on twitter -- guest: i don't believe it can. i don't know what powers it would have to have to do that. i think lobbyists will be able to have their day in front of the cfpb like any other agency. here's one way in which i think the cfpb is different when it comes to lobbying. it was basically built structurally, it's maybe the only agency that is not to be captured by the industries in which it regulates. one of the ways it does that is it has a dedicated source of funding from the federal reserve so that the subcommittees in congress, which are themselves often captured by lobbyists, are not able to manipulate what the cfpb it does. second, the cfpb looks at different as
the democratic nominee arkansas gov. bill clinton. businessman ross perot entered the race as an independent candidate and the three major parties -- the two major party agreed to allow him to enter the debate. this is an hour and 40 minutes. >> here now is mr. ross perot. >> good to see you. thank you. how are you? thank you. >> now, governor clinton. [applause] and now, president bush. [applause] >> and about 30 seconds, we will be going on the air. good evening, and welcome to the first of 3 debates among the major candidates for president of the united states, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. the candidates are: independent candidate ross perot, governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee, and president george bush, the republican nominee. i am jim lehrer of the macneil- lehrer news hour on pbs, and i will be the moderator for this 90-minute event, which is taking place before an audience in the athletic complex on the campus of washington university in st. louis, missouri. three journalists will be asking questions tonight. they are john mashek of the boston globe,
, bill clinton. it only took bush and dick cheney one-term to bring about the recession. now we have another democrat to the rescue. why do we keep having these right-wing people in places of power when all we have our own financial disaster after another? host: by the way, mitt romney writes in the wall street journal and opinion. two candidates are preparing for the debate on wednesday in denver. at the same time we are asking about the vp candidates and whether they will impact your votes. vermont on the line, independence, mary. will the candidates impact your vote? caller: absolutely. primarily, we need someone who is ready to go if something should happen to the president. by far, biden exceeds paul ryan in those qualifications. he has done a wonderful job as vice president. truly exceptional in comparison to others. you don't hear about it much, but if you go to alternate media you get a very good idea of how hard this man works and how capable he is. the definitely would be my choice. the other thing i would like to comment on. i am a retired teacher. americans really need to
debate between george bush, bill clinton, and prospero -- ross perot. >> republican vice president joe candidate paul ryan is making campaign stops in new hampshire and ohio. here is his campaign rally from this morning in new hampshire. he speaks for about half an hour. ♪ >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody. thank you so much. thank you for hosting us. thank you for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. [applause] it is so great to be back here. this is a beautiful place and a beautiful state. i brought my beautiful wife with me as well. [applause] she is here with my sister and brother-in-law. they live right over the border in boston. i do not know if that is a good or bad thing to everybody here. my sister lives in boston. she works for dunkin brands. this man knows how to balance a budget, cut spending, it knows fiscal responsibility. he is one of the leaders helping us to do that. that is charlie bass as well. let's give them a round of applause. [applause] friends, we have a big trees to make. -- we have a big choice to make. this
president george bush, bill clinton, and ross perot in st. louis. and then the year 2000 debate with al gore and former governor george w. bush in boston. join us tonight for past presidential debates on c-span. now the debate from the 1984 presidential campaign. president ronald reagan was running for reelection against former vice president walter mondale. this was the first of two debates between them that year. this takes place in louisville, ky. it aired live on october 7 on the three broadcast networks and attracted over 65 million viewers. this is about an hour and 40 minutes. [applause] >> good evening from the kentucky center for the arts in louisville, kentucky. i'm dorothy ridings, president of the league of women voters, the sponsor of tonight's first presidential debate between republican ronald reagan and democrat walter mondale. tonight's debate marks the third consecutive presidential election in which the league is presenting the candidates for the nation's highest office in face-to-face debate. our panelists are james wieghart, national political correspondent for scripps-
bill clinton and ross perot. then a debate in the missouri senate race. >> september 11 is a day that changed my life, it changed your life as well. i'm going to go through what transpired that day. it gets very intense. a lot of things happened very quickly. i will do my best not to ramble on and go too fast. i would ask you to sit back, clear your minds, and put yourself in that room, and you will get an idea what it was like to be at the top of the food chain, the national command authority as a nation of 300 million americans was attacked by 19 al-qaeda terrorists. >> more from retired lieutenant colonel robert darling "inside the president's bunker" this weekend on c-span 3.  >> the reason i like it, is it because c-span just gives you the news straight up. it is, i would say, one of the most historical archives there are. i primarily watch "washington journal" house of representatives proceedings, c-span 2. >> jake young watches c-span on wow. c-span created by america's cable companies brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> now a deb
romney has to offer and how obama differs. obama's policies have worked. we have seen before, as bill clinton pointed out, you see more job growth under democratic presidents. we try and point out and inform people about exactly what is going on. it starts on a more fundamental basis, which we think we do a much better job with, especially talking about the stimulus. >> one of the most effective tools to reach young voters today? >> it definitely has to be facebook and social media. we just had a google hangout where we streamed a debate between us and the college republicans. they're watching these kinds of things. posting facebook status, tweaketing. they love to see those kinds of things unseen people they know on campus being involved. social media has been one of the p ofulls. >> -- one of the biggest pulls. >> tommy what you are getting -- doing to get people and -- tell me what you are doing to get people. what are you doing? >> it starts with casual conversations. talk about what is important to you. is a gay-rights? the economy? the health care? these are all things obama is
understand who they are. as bill clinton just goes over there and does that i lock on this woman. she is only person in the universe. >> he never asks her, do you feel my pain? [laughter] >> i do not think we wanted to go there. >> i am sure you want to follow that. to go i agree with mike that we are moving in the right direction. -- >> i agree with mike we are living in the right direction. to have the town hall where you get questions that may be a bit unusual, but for candidates have to answer them and look at the public. there's a possibility to follow up. not necessarily the case when you have the panel together. otherthe other aspecguest: the / . >> the other aspect is the 90 minute blocks of time. >> i would agree both of the formats, the town hall and the first of last debates, and the thing that facilitates greater action i think is significant and productive. >> the journalism profession seems to be coming out of the shorter end. no floor reporters. only ones able to ask questions. would you favor that format? >> i do not know, because it is the world's second oldest profession. >>
, he was leading george w. bush and bill clinton. he was pushing 40% in the polls. he could have won the election. he could have entered the white house. people felt that they voted for him and he had that much support, they would not be wasting their votes. he dropped out of the race. he did not have the temperament to deal with all the issues, the reporters, the personalities involved. he dropped out of the race and his poll numbers dropped 7% and when it comes back in in october, he was in the tv debates in ends up with about 20% of the vote. ross perot had a chance to really change politics and change the country back in 1992. for personal reasons, he went back to dallas. it is fine for him to complain about what's going on now but he had a chance to really make a contribution and he dropped out of the race. host: would you comment on the history of voter suppression as it affects third parties as well as the two parties? guest: well, getting on the ballot has been the big problem. that is a form of suppression, i think. then there is the issue of people being afraid if they vote
households to pay higher taxes. to go back to the same rate when bill clinton was president. when we created 23 million new jobs and the biggest surplus and history, and a lot of millionaires to boot. in fairness, my opponent has a plan when it comes to taxes. but as president clinton said, it does not have an arithmetic. -- any arithmetic. they are selling the idea you could spend trillions of dollars on tax breaks for the wealthy. no matter how many times they try to rebuild their campaign, no matter how many times they try to tell you they're going to talk specifics, they do not do it. the reason is because the amount does not work -- the math does not work. they do not explain how tax cuts are going to be put on the table without raising taxes on now class families. they do not stop there. they want to spend another $2 trillion dollars in military spending the military has not asked for. the reason they do not explain it is because they cannot. as they go around with some board behind them with the numbers saying how it is a moral obligation to reduce the deficit,deficit. just us them to
out. host: let's take another look at a moment from a debate. this is in 1992. bill clinton and george h. w. bush. let's take a listen. [video clip] >> you been broad some one from russia. i honored mr. perot end uniform and every man and woman who's ever served, including admiral crowe, who is your joint chiefs and has supported me. but when joe mccarthy went abroad this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong. and a senator from connecticut stood up to him named prescott of bush. your father was right to stand up to joe mccarthy. you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed to the war, but i love my country. we need a president who will bring this country together, not divide it. >> i did not question the man's patriotism. i question his judgment and character. and what he did in moscow, that is fine. let him explain it. i accept that. what i do not accept is organizing demonstrations in a foreign hundred when your country's at war. i'm sorry, i cannot accept that. guest: that is an interesting example of a real disagreement. what bush thought was a strong politi
reform bill came up, he fought against it. that was a bipartisan bill, put forward by president clinton. i liked the bill. john kerry and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. vote againstp cutting spending, requiring people to work for their checks, and against that landmark legislation? >> i did not boast against -- i did not vote against cutting spending p. i work with john t. sick and newt gingrich in 1997, and eat a balanced budget. it got the job done. the balanced the budget. we were paying off debt. the unemployment rate was going down. other than that it did not work. i did not like the welfare bill, because it did not provide the kind of child care support that we needed to provide, and became in in 1997 and did it. i did not require -- i did not oppose people of the kind to have to work. i do not disagree with that position at all. to say that i have opposed spending cuts is inaccurate. i was governor in 1983 when we were in recession. week lowered the tax on food as a consequence of a significant effort by the legislature. it was every int
of self-reliance -- self-deport, self-abort. here is bill clinton at the democratic convention playing saxamaphone. it was either a arithmetic or facts. i was not sure what to put, but to me, -- it is kind of pathetic. democrats were all waiting for somebody to come up and spell out these things clearly, which, apparently, it took bill clinton to come out and say something that democrats felt excited and a rally of about. there might be a communication problem in the white house. here is chris christie speaking at the rnc. [laughter] mitt is down there saying, "don't forget to mention my name, chris." here is a guy running around the republican convention. gops not easy being a convention minority seat filler ." [laughter] clicker. [laughter] nothing to say there. i think the ladies know what i'm talking about. vp choice paul ryan appeals to seniors. scary eddie munster guy. \ here is mitt romney's money.
